Written by Tracey Watts Cirino

Women have lost jobs at a higher rate than men, and have been more impacted by the pandemic than men, according to data compiled by the U.S. Census Bureau

The most recent Women in the Workplace Report by management consultants McKinsey & Company found, for the first time, that 1 in 4 women was considering stepping out of the workforce or downshifting their careers. This study of 40,000 employees concluded that if every woman who was considering quitting her job or reducing her workload actually did so, two million women would exit the US workforce. Women in senior roles, working mothers, and women of color were most at risk.

What to do about the most dangerous place in your company!

Written by Tracey Watts Cirino

What if I told you there was a place inside your business that drains you and your company of revenues, increases your costs, and sometimes even creates dissension in your business?

This location creates distractions that interfere with productivity and team building, while also adding to your aggravation levels and increasing the expense of operating your business.

Drum roll, please ... in case you haven't figured it out yet, we're talking about your BROKE room well other people call it a break room but I call the BROKE room -- where toxic gossip infects your company and employees are paid to waste time.  But more importantly, when was the last time you devoted attention to how your break room could be retooled to serve your purposes, instead of being a "BROKE Room?"

How to Stop Lying to yourself!

·
Written by Tracey Watts Cirino

Ever wake up after getting plenty of sleep and yet you feel exhausted?  After feeling this way, you realize that something has to radically change, but you aren't sure exactly what.

The first thing to do is be very strong and courageous and not lie to yourself.

  • Ask yourself what is working?
  • What is not working?
  • Is there a gap between where I want to be and where I currently am in my business?

If you need to go outside of your inner circle for that, then that's when you need to do to get a really honest answer and not lie to yourself. You can hire a coach or get an accountability partner outside of your friend circle. We are just not designed  to point those things out to ourselves, that is why they are called "blind spots." We all have them in both our personal and professional business life.

Trust me if you already knew how to do it, you would have done it.

If you don't take the time to reflect on this and learn from your mistakes, it is going to show up again and again in an uglier way, in a different way until you actually learn the lesson. 😂😂😂😂

One of the biggest mistakes that people make when they’re planning and goal setting is not to take the time to learn from their mistakes. It takes a lot of courage, it takes tremendous heart. It takes you not bullshitting yourself. It takes you not lying to yourself and having the courage to dig deep enough to realize, you know what, this is my fault and I own it!
